  1. This would be an extreme disappointment if this was the big surprise. Was hoping for something in the realm of a musical release
  2. Sure hoping that this is NOT the big surprise this year. If so, failed miserably
  3. Also as a funny side note......What is the most common answer given to an officer conducting a DWI stop when asking a driver how many drinks have you had tonight? Like Bruce......the answer is 2
  4. Now some clarity to the Attorney Kassman that is quoted earlier. Despite the fact that you can be found guilty with a BAC under .08%, it is a very rare event. So I would say in my experience that his comment about never getting a conviction is accurate. As I stated earlier, alcohol does not mix well with numerous prescribed drugs and of course the Alcotest does not measure the existence or amount of any narcotics/ prescribed drugs in your system. If the officer’s observations did not line up with the reading that was achieved. They should have taken him to the hospital and had blood
  5. Ok, let me take a stab at this one. When a local, county or state officer makes an arrest, they generally disseminate that information to local papers by either press releases or a department approved information for the police blotter. Arrests, reports and general info However, I am not sure that the Federal Agencies do the same. The APP which is the main Monmouth/Ocean County papers, I have never seen a Sandy Hook blotter in that paper. And I used to read the police blotters quite regularly. So if the Federal Park Rangers do release that information, I have no clue where that would be.
  6. I’m going to take an educated guess from the different reports. While not versed on procedure of Federal Park Rangers. Since he has not been charged with Refusal to my knowledge, it appears to me that he refused a PBT on scene. Those PBT readings are used towards probable cause to arrest and usually added info to the standard field sobriety tests. You are not mandated by law to take the PBT. It would make sense that he was arrested on scene and then brought into the PD and was asked again to submit to breath samples which is mandatory by law. If the .02% reading is true, it’s f
  7. But yes, I’d say hold off as you see that more bits coming out as time goes by and conflicting the earlier reports
  8. The article from zzcoolness has the refusal in it but then states that samples given later were measured at .02% but not how long after the arrest
  9. Yeah see, the story continues to morph. This is the first mention I’ve seen of a refusal. If he did refuse, than the .02% is most likely false if you look at this article, it says he was viewed taking the last swig of a tequila bottle, not just a shot
  10. No, refusal to submit to breath samples is a stand alone and additional charge. Which means if the judge found you guilty for DWI, you would receive a 6 month loss of license and could receive an additional 6 month loss for the refusal conviction. According to the articles that I have seen, there is no mention of a refusal
  11. Yes, you are required by law to submit to breath samples. Refusal to do so is an automatic 6 month suspension of license. Generally it is 40 minutes or more between the traffic stop and the taking of breath samples
  12. Well, certain medicines have warnings on the labels not to mix with alcohol. But when folks ignore those warnings, they can technically be impaired without actually being over the legal limit. Not really strictly a judgement call, as sobriety tests (balance tests) are always given to help the officer judge a person’s capacity to operate a motor vehicle. Within those balance tests are simple mental acuity tests as well The 2nd part is strictly .08% or higher And the 3rd option would be if arrested in a State where the legal limit is below .08%. In that State they would charge at
  13. If the .02 reading is correct, one shot will not get you there. Just saying. We’ll eventually hear the story
  14. Other than the article posted, none of the locals news had cited any readings. I’d wait until confirmed
  15. My guess would be that because Sandy Hook is a National Park, they do not disseminate arrests to the local papers as the local and county police do. And I guess it came out now due to his court appearance scheduled in federal court in Newark
  16. It is not as the DUI occurred in a National Park making it a Federal law and not NJ State Law
  17. Because the offense is in a National Park, it is a Class B Misdemeanor. Punishable by 6 month loss of license and could get up to 6 months in a Federal Prison. It’s why his court appearance is in Federal Court in Newark and not a local Monmouth County Municipality
  18. Not a shot. I have zero interest in Jeep no matter the mouth piece they use!
